Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word Research proposal.


  1. Research proposal

    A research proposal is a document written by a researcher that provides a detailed description of the proposed program. It is like an outline of the entire research process that gives a reader a summary of the information discussed in a project. Research proposals are written for various reasons, such as requesting a budget for the research they describe, certification requirements for research, as a task in tertiary education, or as a condition for employment at a research institution. They may be considered as grey literature. The phrasing of research proposals has many similarities to that of scientific articles. Research proposals are written in future tense and have different points of emphasis. Like scientific articles, research proposals have sections describing the research background, significance, methods, and references. The method section of research proposals is far more detailed than those of scientific articles, allowing profound understanding of the price and risks of the study and the plans for reducing them. Instead of a section describing the results, research proposals have a section describing the hypotheses or the expected results.
